SINCE 1934

Oak Bay Bikes is proud of it's almost 100 year history in the community.  From the shop's humble beginnings in 1934, just two doors over on Oak Bay Ave, to it's now 12,000 square foot, 3 level, retail space on the corner of Oak Bay Ave and Foul Bay Road, the store has continued to be a mainstay of the local cycling scene and broader community.  Karl Ullrich, the shop's current owner took over in 1988 and has guided the shop through the continued evolution of bicycles, retail and customer service.
